Are you part of a cultural group that’s doing something new or interesting? Or do you know a creative group in your area that deserves recognition?

From singing to knitting, amateur dramatics to painting, across the UK and Republic of Ireland over 60,000 groups regularly get creative purely for the love of it. The Epic Awards shine a light on their achievements, and the opportunities for creative participation they bring to local communities.

Run by Voluntary Arts, The Epic Awards are an annual celebration of amateur cultural activity. A winner and runner-up is chosen from each of the nations - England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales - as well as specialist awards for those working with young people and disabled people, and a ‘People’s Choice’ award voted for by the public.

Previous winners have seen the profile of their group raised, gone on to make interesting collaborations, and won other awards.

Information about previous winners, and nomination forms, can be found at

Deadline: 7 December 2015

The Epic Awards are supported by Spirit of 2012.
